School Dinners

School dinners

Children may have a school meal cooked on the premises or bring a packed lunch.

The school office can give confidential advice on whether a child is entitled to have free school meals and how to apply.

Children who pay for their meals are asked to bring the money into school on Monday morning for the whole week. 

Cheques can no longer be accepted due to cheque guarantee cards being abolished and the school has no facility to accept card payments.

The current price as set in September 2017 is £2.25 per day.

Special Dietary Requirements

If your child has specific medical or religious needs please inform the class teacher and school office, in writing, so the kitchen staff can then meet your child’s requirements.

Healthy Diet

The Senior Catering Officer has to balance the school menu each week in order to ensure that the children eating school meals are receiving adequate amounts of vegetables, carbohydrate, protein, fats etc and limit the amount of restricted foods such as processed meats.

Therefore, we ask parents providing lunches to not include chocolate or sweets as part of their child’s packed lunch.

School dinners

Tuck Shop

Healthy snacks are on sale every day for both Key Stage 1 (4-7 years old) and Key Stage 2 (7-11 years old.)


KS1 are charged 30p per day for toast and a drink to be paid on Mondays for the week, costing £1.50. Children may bring their own drink and every child in KS1 will receive a free piece of fruit provided by the Local Authority.

KS2 are requested to bring their own tuck money in and look after it until morning break when they can purchase from a range of healthy snacks in order to increase their independence.


Dinner money, KS1 juice/toast money and trip money should always be sent into school in a sealed envelope provided by school at the start of each half term, clearly marked with the child’s name and class. This envelope should then be placed in the security box located outside their classroom, by your child only to encourage independence.
